Vintage Official Little League B760 Horse Hide Cover baseball. Hand-signed boldly on the sweet spot in steel tip fountain pen by Babe Ruth (D 1948, Yankees HOF). The ball and autograph are in high grade condition. All panels of the baseball are shown in the images below.

Babe Ruth, nicknamed "the Bambino" and "the Sultan of Swat", was the first player to hit 60 home runs in one season (1927), a mark not surpassed until Roger Maris hit 61 in 1961. Ruth's lifetime record of 714 home runs stood until 1974 when it was surpassed by Hank Aaron. Unlike many power hitters, Ruth also hit for a high batting average: his .342 lifetime average is the tenth highest in baseball history, and in one season (1923) he batted .393, a Yankee record.

Ruth dominated the era in which he played. He led the league in home runs during a season twelve times, slugging percentage and OPS thirteen times each, runs scored eight times, and RBIs six times. Each of those totals represents a modern record

Baseball includes an official PSA/DNA LOA for authenticity purposes.
